The Trouble with Cowboys
(A Big Sky Romance #3)
Experct from goodreads.com
Only one pair of boots-and the cowboy wearing them-can get Annie out of the mess she's in. ""
Annie Wilkerson is Moose Creek's premiere horse trainer and equine columnist for "Montana Living." Money is tight as she tries to put her kid-sister through college and provide for her young nephew.
When Annie's column is cancelled, she's given first shot at a new lovelorn column-and she can't afford to turn it down. Only problem is . . . Annie's never been in love.
Always resourceful, she reluctantly strikes a deal with the town's smooth-talking ladies' man Dylan Taylor: She'll work with his ailing horse, Braveheart, if he'll help her answer the reader letters.
Working closely with Dylan is harder than Annie imagined, and she quickly realizes she may have misjudged him. But her unwavering conviction that cowboys are nothing but trouble has kept her heart safe for years. And she can't risk getting hurt now.
The more Annie tries to control things, the more they fall apart. Her feelings are spinning out of control, and her sister's antics are making life increasingly more difficult. Annie knows she needs to turn the reins over to God, but surrender has never come easily.
When Dylan reveals his feelings for her, Annie doesn't know what to trust-her head or her heart.
The trouble with "this" cowboy is that he might just be exactly what she needs.
Well I loved this one, from start to end.
It just proved love can make you do just about anything. Weather it be love of a Horse or even a man.
If you love Cowboys I say give this one a read, I’m sure you’ll love it.
I think I should really start these series from the first one. lol So off to find the first ones in these ones.

Things take a strange turn when she uses her late grandmother’s food dyes for a bake sale, and her customers suddenly find her irresistibly alluring. Then she discovers she and Mason are haunted by the same dreams of a dark force that consumes everything in its path.

In her quest to unravel her family’s history, she learns she is destined to protect this world--and the dark world of her dreams.

Ok, I am not 100% sure how much I liked this one. I got a bit lost in and was not sure what the pyxis was for.
I was written good and the carters seem fun. So maybe I will reread it soon and I might get it the next time.

Does have sex and voiolents
So 18 and older
It was fun to read this story. The only reason I gave it a 4.5 and not a 5 is because I would have liked to see it a little longer and more detail when you get to the end.
I liked how it was written and how it pulled me into the story and I stayed there all the way tho.
I love how Anna is so strong willed and so very feisty. Adam is one heck of an Alpha and its fun to watch him fight what fills so right.
Therefore, if you are looking for a paranormal romance with some zing, this one might be just up your alley!
(A Wolf's Pride #2)
Expert off goodreads.com
Seeking revenge, Pride is headed back to the compound where she was once nearly broken to the will of an evil master. She’ll stop at nothing to free the enslaved wolves still caged in the estate’s underground prison. Knowing there is only one way back inside the fortified mansion, Pride allows herself to be captured.
Armed with a plan, she finds herself back in her cage but when things begin to unravel, she once again finds herself at the mercy of her former master. This time, however, she knows she has two wolves on her side, Logan and Stone—powerful alphas who will both fight to the death to free her.
Except the compound hides secrets that threaten both her heart and her identity and when bonds are tested and bloodlines are revealed, Pride realizes if she completes her mission she’ll be releasing her pack into a world where no one, least of all Pride, is safe.
I wish I could give this one more stars, and maybe after I read number 1 I might be able too.
I do love Pride! With all she faces she is still strong and sound minded. There are a few parts that I didn’t see coming from a mile away.
I’m thinking that if you have a thing for strong woman who can shift into a wolf then you got your book J

The Rake and the Recluse
expert off goodreads.com
Francine Larrabee woke up on the wrong side of the century. She was fairly certain she went to sleep in her own comfy bed, but she doesn’t quite seem to be there now. Only adding to her problems is that she has no voice, is constantly being glowered at by a large, stunning man who is obsessed with propriety, and she is apparently betrothed to another horrid little man, determined to ruin her, and any other girls that get in his way.
How does she find herself in the past, when she couldn’t even find herself in her present? How does a self sufficient businesswoman survive in a time when women were still considered property for the whole of their lives and what is she going to do with this man who draws her to him so fiercely.
I loved this book. At the very start, I loved it. Francine part was just wonderful and she got to have her very own recluse. The very sexy Duke.
I do not even know where to start in telling you.
It was wow. You know sometimes when you open a story and you get so lost, you don’t know what going on around you and you don’t care either… Will this was one of them for me.
If you love sexy Historical Romance then this one is for you!
